Little bit of a dirtier sbd...I like it
Pretty strong performance here, plus this SBD is a pretty good example of a reason why I tend to favor the Pigpen era and generally the rest of '72: they sound warmer and dryer. There's not as much of the glisten that is expected from the other half of the decade and that's nice to get once in a while in spite of the cleaner sound having its merits. I Need a Miracle and Its All Over Now are the titles I don't care for here, but the whole Playing sandwich is a delight with one of the nicer, tidier Drums of '78 and Candyman stood out for me too.

Now Hold on one minute there folks!
This show is an absolute delight to the ears. Yeah thats right, there is nothing extra special here- no first set scarlet fire or casey Jones encore- no stephen>Dew no help slip but there is a guitarist up there who is taking this gig seriously. The playin jam by Garcia is outrageous. It is not '73-'74 no but it does not dissapoint in the slightest. The Shakedown is clearly a set saver- only Terrapin or maybe an eyes could have saved this set from apppearing lame. BUt the playin Jam is worth the listen at the very least. It sounds like slipknot. I love the playin jams and like to collect them so this show is a major find for me and I am extremely stoked about it. Ship of fools has Jerry on fire!

I like the sound of this recording. It reminds me of when I was younger and listening to my first few boots. Also, I love the long jam on It's all over now!!

Jack Straw is the highlight of an otherwise non-descript first set. Set II is short, Playin and Shakedown are good but overall the sound is beat and this is not a good show in a weak year.
